Public keynote

We cordially invite you to the public keynote speech during the Marie Jahoda Summer School 2019:

Divorce and its Aftermath for Children: New Findings, New Challenges

In this keynote address, Dr. Susan Brown provides an overview of divorce trends and patterns from an international comparative perspective. She also describes key findings about the implications of divorce for children, highlighting novel insights from the latest research on children's experience of parental divorce. She pays particular attention to the long-term consequences of divorce for children's adjustment through adulthood and the effects on intergenerational relationships across the life course. In line with the rise in gray divorce among adults over age 50, she explores how parental divorce in the second half of life alters aging parent-adult child relationship dynamics. The address concludes with a consideration of the critical challenges facing the field that inform directions for future research.
